The Polish Corridor Crisis by Muzik-Maniac The Polish Corridor Crisis by Muzik-Maniac
Just a random Map i did on a spur of the moment idea.

I was originally planning on doing a timeline for this idea, but that doesn't look exactly like it's going to happen anytime soon.

This is still probably open to possible future edits (A lot of them). I tried to slightly at least format it (cause there's no way in hell i can texture it) to somewhat look like something you'd see in a history Text book (I wanted to add more statistics, but ran out of room, and making more room would have required me to shift everything around).

Anyway, back on topic, for anyone wondering the premises of this map, to sum it up, basically if German/Polish Relations over the Polish Corridor had come to a boiling point, in the event of a Nazi Party that never rose to complete control.
- Germany Looses WWI (Like OTL)
-Hitler does not join the fledgling NAZI party, in fact he does precisely what he was sent there to do, he subverts the party and manages to cripple it or some time, Although Anton Drexler manages to recover and grow the party (not to the extent and popularity that Hitler aquired in OTL).
-The Nazi Party still grows to be a considerable force, but are on even ground with the Growing communist movement.
-The Bavarian Soviet Republic does not declare independence until the very peak of Chaos in inter-war Germany.
-The Soviet Republic of Alsace declares it's independence, and gains backing by the Bavarian Soviets.
-The United States grows very weary of the Growing communist threat in Germany, and prepares for a plan of containment.
-German-Polish Relations continue to strain due to the issue of the Polish Corridor.
-Several NAZI extremist groups make armed incursions into the corridor in the name for "The Master Race." Some of the Actions undertaken include several bombings, robberies, and even a couple of assassinations of local polish Political figures.
-Poland demands reparations for the damages done, and when the German Government refuses to pay (and recognize the borders established by the treaty of Versailles) Poland requests the league of nations to implement sanctions on Germany.
-With the German Economy already teadering on the brink of complete collapse (due to the Versailles economic sanctions, and Great Depression), the German Government again refuses to give in to the demands of reparation.
-Riots break out in Alsace-lorraine upon the French re-occupation, in protest to the French Treatment to the Native Germans.
-Pro communist and even Nazi party members begin a campaign of domestic terror.
-1933: Poland and France Both issue a joint declaration of war on Germany in order to "Contain" the German Threat of Hostility.
-French forces begin an unstoppable march into the Rhineland DMZ, Polish forces begin to march into eastern Prussia.
-The United States (Having grown sympathetic to the German people, given the Terms of Versailles, and economic sanctions imposed) immediately condemns French and Polish Actions against Germany.
-The Bavarian Soviet Republic Declares independence from Germany, and (with what military force in can muster) immediately begins to push into the French Advance to try and aid their Alsacian Allies.
-The U.S. Threatens military action agianst the French and Polish Forces, calling the Joint invasion, "unfair, and unnecessary"
-Due to the economic and military turmoil, riots erupt all throughout germany.

*Note: Given the Allied views of Germany Post WWI, i wouldn't doubt France would jump in and further inflict revenge on germany given the chance. ;)

And That's all i'll state for now, a very rough outline. of the Idea i had.

If you have any comments or questions, feel free to express/ask, I'll answer them the best i can! :)

Interesting thought, what could have happened if the Weimarer Republik was not "stabilized" by the nazis, but rather went down into bloody chaos.
However, back then Bavaria was the heartland of the nazis and other nationalist/right-wing movements, while the sailors and dockworkers of Hamburg were very prone to communism. So it would be more realistic the other way arround, than your map is showing.

Too bad that did not happen. There would be no World War II. And if France was still so determined (and not cowardly as in 1939 and 1940) are Poland, France and Great Britain could and would overcome Stalin's "Red Plague" in the 40 '.

Also,the Soviets would wilingly ally with a non-Nazi Germany just to help the Bavarians and Alsatians, and crush Poland and what remains of Germany later.

Possible Nazi Germany/American war against France and Poland... hur hur.... Germany has already won. Maybe not anything close to super-mega-nazi Lebensraum, but maybe the Polish Corridor and Alsace-Lorraine.

It looks like a near complete role reversal. And odds of the French and Poles going on their own little Non-aggression act?

Well, Poland is only in it to further quell the Germans, so that they don't have to worry about anymore claims on the polish corridor (and maybe annex Warmia), and France... well they'll probably just try and do as much as they can before another power likely intervenes to settle the dispute.
